That's been proven to work, but you should try meru's fix first.

working on my overclock..

i set it at 450x9 and i just keep droping the Vcore one or 2 bumps at a time and run a few passes of IBT till it fails, then bump the Vcore back up and run more stress tests..

i keep going lower and lower and it just wont fail! while this is taking a long time, i have to say im happy!

if i tried to get a higher OC out of this, i will most likely be limited by my RAM... i would have to take out the corsair ram and just run the Gskills cause they can clock a lot higher. the Gskills could probably run up to 550fsb 1:1 which is probably more than the CPU will run

now that W7 is running and i have some apps on it, i miss a few things from XP

any idea how to get the windows media tool bar on the taskbar? i really like that in XP

and games dont like to minimize, and FRAPS doesnt work in games (its an old version of fraps, maybe a newer version would work better?)

if you're using fraps for FPS count, try MSI Afterburner, is good for OCing that 5770, and can show temps/FPS in-game.

here is one way for getting your toolbar back:

i think i got a stable OC on my E8400

450x9 = 4.05ghz

1.28125 Vcore in bios
1.248v in CPUz @ idle
1.216v @ 100% load

passed 50 runs of IBT, over 2 hours of stress testing.

max temp was 65*C

looks like i could push further and still be safe!
